Skoota Warner’s new single and video for Man Of Value is premiering over at All Music. The jazz inspired hip-hop track features C-Rayz Walz and showcases Skoota’s precise drumming style which has earned him the title “The Drummer’s Drummer” due to his ability to play anything from ballads to rock, funk to R&B, pop to hip-hop, jazz to blues and everything in-between. All of these influences, and the help of a few good friends, created his new solo album‘Vignettes.’ The musicians who collaborated in the process are as diverse as one could expect fromDJ Logic to Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and zydeco artist Donna Angelle to name a few as well as C-Rayz Walz who appears on several songs. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
To celebrate the release of ‘Vignettes’, Skoota will be playing New York City’s Rockwood Music Hallon June 22nd. He will be joined by Freedom Bremner: Vocals (The Screaming Headless Torsos),Aaron Dugan: Guitar (Matisyahu), Danny Sadownick: Percussion (Taylor Swift), Booker King: Bass (Corey Glover), Bahnamous Bowie: Piano and Keyboards (Amel Larrieux) plus some surprise special guests!
